2018 Prospect 772 "Black Tie Charlie" Sierra Foothills Red Blend

SKU #1494391 90 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark The wines of Prospect 772 are rarely, if ever, lacking for ripeness, and the 2018 Black Tie Charlie is no exception, but it is absolutely bursting with fruit, very well-structured and not at all hampered by raisiny excess or invasive heat. It is big-bodied stuff to be sure and is more temperate in tannin than its high percentage of Petite Sirah might predict, and it is an amazingly rich wine for one of its price. *Good Value* Inner quote mark (3/2021)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This red is plump and ripe with plenty of torque, offering current and blackberry flavors accented by licorice and garrigue, building toward potent tannins. Petite Sirah and Syrah. (TF, Web-2021) Inner quote mark

K&L Notes

A couple of years ago we came across Prospect 772, and quickly fell in love with the range of Rhône-style wines they produce. The winery is located in the Sierra Foothills in Calaveras County, and was founded by Ron Pieretti and Wendy Sanda, two industry professionals who have set out to produce food-friendly wines based on their favorite Rhône varieties. “Black Tie Charlie” is composed of 50% Petite Sirah and 50% Syrah. True to its name, this wine is dressed to the nines, decadent and almost flamboyant in its rich, luscious profile. It’s a bold choice of varieties—a Petite Sirah and Syrah blend could easily go off the rails and be far too tannic and dense—but it’s carried off with a seamless elegance thanks to the quality of the fruit and winemaking. Not only is the tannin restrained and nicely integrated with the fruit, the wine itself is already open and ready to drink.
